Salem, Ore. -- On Tuesday, the Senate “Gang of 8” is expected to introduce legislation that represents a clear and inclusive roadmap for the 11 million undocumented immigrants living and working in America today to earn legal status and the privilege of citizenship. The political, economic, and moral imperative for legalization has never been clearer.
- The unreasonable exclusion of categories of undocumented immigrants from earning legal status.
- Unrealistic hurdles or contingencies that will prevent legalized immigrants from obtaining permanent residence and citizenship in a reasonable time frame.
- Restrictions on family-based sponsorship.
- Heavy-handed border and interior enforcement.
